“You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy…”
This weekend the most diverse collection of individuals on our planet have gathered together in New York City at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center for this year’s New York Comic-Con. And a group of our contributing GoDs — (Athena, Danny, Sarah, Max, Eve, and me, Dave3, to be exact) — are here to provide coverage of all the goings-on of NYCC 2015.
Among my favorite things to do is walk the convention floor, checking out all the goodies, meeting artists, creators, exhibitors, fans, and cosplayers. And of course, taking pictures along the way. And I spent the majority of today doing exactly that: perusing the aisles of the convention floor, taking in the sites, the sounds, and the smells of the ever-growing yearly Geekdom collective.
Today’s highlights include a run-in with the Baseball Furies from The Warriors, Princess Sparklefist herself Captain Marvel, and the amazingly amusing webslinger amalgam, Spider-Met!
Anyhoo, hit the jump and check out my photo galleries from today.
I’m always asked, particularly by people of my age range who grew up in the ’80s, “why aren’t there any great straight-up heavy rock bands anymore?” By this they usually mean bands with clean singing, where you can understand the lyrics and the instrumentation is neither grinding nor racing along at a breakneck pace while covering every scale known to man. In other words, a heavy band that you might have heard on the radio back in the heyday of heavy rock with memorable riffs and melodies.
Well, if you count yourself among those people, Lo Pan just might be the band for you. If you can imagine the lovechild of Tool and Kyuss, you’ve got a pretty good idea of what Lo Pan are all about.
Check out a track listing and cover art for Lo Pan’s next album below, along with an audio sample of the band.
